Portuguese group, Amorim, the largest cork producer in the world, is described by Forbes Magazine as “number one, two, three, four and five in the cork industry”. Seventy percent of this material is used to make cork stoppers for wine. PRGN France consultancy, Greenwich, has been working with Amorim since the company established a French presence in 1992.


In recent year’s plastic and aluminium wine closures have been progressively taking market share from Amorim. Citing the absence of “wine taint”, the plastic and aluminium industries have mounted a successful proactive PR campaign while the cork industry’s response has, in the main, been defensive.

Greenwich recommended that Amorim tackle this issue head on by staging three round table “conference of consensus” events, utilising independent experts, on the topic “Cork, Aluminium, Plastic : Impact of the Closure on the Consumer, the Environment & Wine Development”.
